Shark Bio­di­ver­si­ty Initiative

Shark Con­ser­va­tion Fund

The Shark Bio­di­ver­si­ty Ini­tia­tive is a new, ten-year glob­al ini­tia­tive to pro­tect the bio­di­ver­si­ty of our oceans. It’s the first-of- its-kind, glob­al effort that will ded­i­cate the finan­cial, strate­gic, and human resources need­ed to pro­tect sharks and their habi­tats, which are crit­i­cal for a healthy ocean. The new ini­tia­tive will expand the num­ber of MPAs designed to ben­e­fit sharks and rays by lever­ag­ing pub­lic and pri­vate part­ner­ships to estab­lish 100 Shark Bio­di­ver­si­ty Zones across the globe — areas specif­i­cal­ly designed to pro­tect sharks from key threats, reduce mor­tal­i­ty and pro­tect crit­i­cal habitats.
